Pets: Pets are allowed but must be kept on a leash.

Picnic Area: None at Steer Basin but Harrington Picnic Area is just a short drive back downstream and is very nice.

Recreation: Camping is an obvious activity and there are a few trails nearby for hiking. I could certainly spend some time in this area with my camera. And, I heard the fishing can be very good if you put in some effort to get isolated areas.

Fishing: There is fishing available in Rock Creek and other nearby streams. Check the regulations here.

Boating: None nearby.

Swimming: One could play in Rock Creek but there is no swimming area.
